This is an image sent to me a long time ago by a dear friend (look familiar Carrie) so I thought it was time I put it to good use.  Saw this technique on Stamp TV where you emboss wax paper, then iron the wax paper on cs, swipe with inks & the inks will only stay where there is no wax.  Mine didn't turn out as well as Gina K's did so I ran the cs through my cuttlebug after inking.

Playing in the Rain

This is a High Hope stamp that I've had for awhile but thought it'd be great for a Spring swap as it reminds me of our Spring here on Canada's West Coast, very wet.

A Purple Flower

I stamped this solid flower with Versa Magic's Spring Pansy, then colored over it with my Prisma colors, added Glossy Accents & glitter.  Stamp set is from Artfulinkables.

A Boy & His Friends

A Penny Johnson stamp & oh so cute.  The little dog is also a Penny Johnson image but I separated the little dog from the rest of the image.

Mrs Comfy Crafting

This was a fun one to color as I'm sure all us crafters can relate to glitter everywhere especially.

A Dog's Home

This is a digi but I forgot where I got it from.  This dog was just so silly looking I had to bring him home, just look at that face :>).

Another Bobble Head

I've been doing bobble head magnets, decided to try my hand at a bobble card.

Puppy Picnic

This is a Sara Kay stamp, so much detail in her art.

Party Mice

Another little cutie from Bildmalarna stamps, I sure had fun with this one.  I stamped the bottle label & cork wrapper on silver cs & lots of glossy accents on the bottle.  I was tempted to stamp the cork on cork but I was sorting & organizing paper all day & too darn tired/lazy to get up & get it, next time :>)

This is actually the second version of this card as I lost the first one that was for a swap.  I spent so much time looking I finally gave in, sat down & made another.  Of course I found the original one shortly after the second was completed........in my linen closet......go figure, another day of CRS.  This time I actually stamped the bottle cork on cork.

Mrs Comfy goes Surfing

 Another digi from Phind's Place, these are so much fun to color with all the little details in her pics.

I really, really need more practice coloring orange cats, you can see here why I have a fear of doing this.

Special Delivery

This is another of Penny Johnson's cuties that I couldn't resist, she has so many of them too.

Thanks from a Friend

I've been giving card making instructions to a friend who is very enthusiastic about learning.  This is one of her first cards, a thank you to me, I don't think she needs anymore lessons, she is doing very well.  I think all she needs is a little more knowledge about the products available.

Soccer Star

Now this little guy comes with a story, I sent my grandson a card with some cash figuring his main interest was the cash.....wrong.  Apparently after opening the card he turned it to look at the back, that's when he realized his Omi didn't make this card & made mention of the fact to his Mom.  He's a super little soccer player since he was 4 yrs old & still going strong at 13yrs.  When I saw this stamp I knew I had to have it to make him a card.

This is the second time I got caught by a grandson, I only have 2, now I know they both check to see if Omi made their cards.  Funny I never really thought my hand made cards were meaningful to my grandsons, well, they showed me :>)

This stamp is from Wag N Whiskers, check them out HERE





Framed Flowers

I was going to try the double embossing technique I saw at SCS, you can see it HERE
well, I couldn't get the cardboard thick enough or it was too thick.  Then I had this thought, emboss, die cut, make frame with 2 die cuts & emboss, much easier with the same look for me anyway.

Just Sitting in the Rain

Now when I saw these 2 stamps I had to have them like NOW.  These are from Whimsy Stamps, you can see them HERE.  They ship quickly too.  I had some fun doing some paper piecing with this & now want to try more of that too.

So many ideas, so little time :>) 






Feed Me

This digi is from Whoopsi Daisy, she does some beautiful artwork, you can check it out for yourself here.  There is a freebie too.  I used a little flower soft & brown glitter in the food dish.

Brush Writer

I forget where I got this  digi, I'll remember eventually I'm sure.  At first I thought I'd resized her too small but out of share laziness on my part I colored, cut, layered, well not too bad eh.  Digi is from Tidly Inks.

Farmer Bobble

Well a couple of friends have me hooked on making "Bobble Heads"  & they are just way too much fun.

This poor farmer is looking like he has a bad complexion, well, he had a real good one before I dropped him into the dog's water dish before sealing him.  Now the black edging has seeped into his face, poor little farmer.  Maybe I can make him into a farmer with color......LOL
